This short road trip film was made as a student project at Williams College and takes the viewer north for the entire length of Route 7, the main north-south United States highway on the western side of Vermont, from Massachusetts to Quebec. Footage was shot every three seconds from a 1971 VW Beetle. The transfer from film to digital was made at standard speed, so the footage is very fast. A film editor could be used to slow the speed down for further study.
Topics: Vermont, Route 7, 1974, time-lapse photography, roads, cars
